Last night before bed I looked in the mirror and realized my upper lip is disappearing. I've also  just noticed how wrinkly my neck is. Why do our bodies change with age? Thinking positively, at least all the signs of aging aren't arriving at the same time.

I bought a new iPad on Friday! I'd had my old one forever, as in maybe 5 years? It got to the point where it constantly disappointed me. It was used up. I'm excited to own a new one. I've spent a lot of money lately on home projects so it was a big decision to spend additional money on anything. I had to give myself permission, which is hard for me to do.

I biked 20 miles yesterday with my friend Laurie in 20mph winds with additional mighty gusts. It was crazy and hard and my bottom is very sore from the seat. I'm glad I did it.

I'm feeling kind of down today, for some reason. I need to get dressed in the right clothes and take a walk. I'm going to do that right now. The sun is shining and it's a beautiful day.

Does anyone use Flipboard? It's one of my favorite apps on my iPad. My home screen features Cover Stories, People, Oprah, Wired, Engadget and...Ladeda. For two years I've seen the picture of my cousin Brian and me, sitting on a couch. I've given a little thought to writing, but knew I probably wouldn't keep up with it. In a way I'm sorry I ever stopped. I did write for myself, really, and for many years it was a journal of my life. It's a wonderful thing to have and to look back on. Many things have changed since I've written, yet much remains the same. Life is good! I have my same great job. I just celebrated 29 years at Mason and Friends. I'll stay there till I can retire. I'm thinking 7 or 8 more years? My daughter is 22 and has mostly lived on her own since she was 18.She's doing great. I have a wonderful boyfriend who I met kayaking. I'm living my best life now.

So this is my start. Maybe if I take it slow, I can be steady.
